    Any explanation for this error when attempting to install the Yosemite update?

    It is happening on both a 2012 MBP and 2012 MP with the Combo Update only. I searched the Net and found lots of occurrences but no explanation of what it really means or how to make corrections.

    It's probably referring to something about the hard drive that you're trying to install to. How much free disk space do those computers have? Is there anything unusual about the way that your hard drive is set up? The partition scheme, or anything of that sort?

    Notice that the system requirements for the 10.10.2 Combo update state 10.10.
    This seems to be a change in how the combo updates work so you'll need to install the regular patch update.

    Install the delta update.

    I had the same issue.

    The combo update has been modified by Apple and reposted. It will now install on 10.10.1 (and 10.10.2) systems.
